    Hi,
    I have a similar issue with a 4670 MXM card From an Acer with modified bios to Work on an iMac Computer from Apple.
    When I try to use the card that's work only on an external monitor and not in the internal one
    When I try to dissambled the bios with AtomDis I can't find the same informations as you:

    "Device type: TMDS (DVI or HDMI)
    DDC port: DDC-B (MXM pins 230 & 232)
    Connector: HDMI Type A socket
    Connector location: External
    Link type: Single-link DVI/HDMI connected to TMDS link A
    HDMI audio source: No audio
    Digital signal drive strength: Normal
    Digital reserved field 1 (2 bits, should always be 11): 01 (incorrect, violates the MXM spec!)
    Output select GPIO: None
    DDC select GPIO: None
    Device detection GPIO: #0, active low (logic low on GPIO pin 0 indicates a display plugged into the HDMI port)
    System hot plug notification: Disabled"

    I tried also to use IDA but same problem.

    I don't understand clearly how I can find "Device detection GPIO" and try to fix my problem.

    Thank you very much for help

    Hello, you have some information about Quadro FX 770M (hp video card) if it works on 5920G?
    I updated the BIOS with 5920G_MXM_V3.WPH, and now use the 9600M GT but is not satisfied:
    1. Image Quality
    - Image is a little blurry, if i try to use the latest nvidia drivers, the best results are on win7 with driver, from acer website
    2. The performance - weaker than 3650m hd

    Hi all, just like to confirm a successful installation of NVidia 9600m gt ddr3 in my Acer 9920. I used the files as supplied by a French site and 1st flashed the laptop sbios with the 1.20 mod version and then having installed the 9600m gt card. I then flashed the vbios on that too. I purchased a heat plate from an acer 5520 to fit to card and will show pictures in next post of my modified cooling, which works for me. Windows 7 and windows 10 both work perfectly with the drivers it installs. A happy 9920 owner. Just need to win lottery to get 8gb ram now lol oh an faster cpu. Currently have intel core 2 duo t8300. A Big Thank You to NetRolller 3D and others for their dedication on the subject

    Is there a way to use Acer 5920G without any MXM card?

    I tried a modded bios which had incorporated a toggle Internal Display AUTO / BOTH but didnt worked.
    So Im not sure if its only bios related ( i need a proper different modded bios?) or it is hardware related ( maybe shortcutting or soldering on motherboard?) or both.?

    I only find Posts related to upgrading the Card or similar, but none talking about using only the internal built in GPU.

    Any help I would appreciate.
    Thanks JL
